The Dove

Upon arriving late in the evening on a Saturday night to Tortola, British Virgin Islands a colleague of mine had recommended The Dove as a nice place to eat. Whilst I was pretty exhausted from travelling all the way from London, I was a bit hungry and was looking forward to tasting some Island food.  The restaurant is located close to the harbour and is quite cosy inside. I understand that it is usually best to book ahead but as we arrived fairly late on the Saturday evening, they did have a table available. I told our server that I was allergic to gluten and they said they would check with the chef but the dishes I had ordered should be ok (or could be modified to be gluten-free).

First we were treated by the chef to an hors d’oeuvre of mushroom, asparagus and egg – delicious!

For my starter, I chose the tuna tartar. I was not disappointed, it tasted so fresh – I could have eaten two plates worth! The presentation was lovely with a few pretty edible flowers.

For my main I had Angus steak and fries. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the steak but again I was pleasantly surprised that the meat was fresh and tender and the peppercorn sauce was just devine.

Unfortunately but the end of the main course I was too full to try a dessert. I was impressed that the restaurant was easily able to accommodate me eating gluten-free and the food was of an excellent quality. I would definitely recommend dining at The Dove if you are ever in Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
